    I'll leave it out when the male patients stop "leaving it out".

    And, nothing wrong with the word "penis". I think the fact that most people here haven't used some of the other less polite words is very professional.

    1) Did the thought cross your mind that maybe they would prefer
    a male nurse considering your attitude!

    2) It's not professional when people on this site use threatening tones
    of what they would like to do to patients whether its intentional or
    not!

    2) the third derivative in differential calculus
    indicating small changes in acceleration

    penis part out!
    this is a professional forum. "penis" is the professional word.

    I had a 63 yo male tell his nurse that he knew that I wanted to do an EKG on him just b/c all I wanted to do was see his body!!! Yeah right!!

    When I was in nursing school I worked as a tech/aide. I knew my patient was a jerk because she said to me --"you are not even a nurse, your just an aide! I'm a doctor know your place next time!" --All because I told her to refrain from changing the settings on the IV pump!

    Now I'm a nurse I wonder if she will listen to me !!!

    They trip you with their O2 tubing, roll their eyes, and then tell you that you don't know how to do their job. Oh, this is after you went to get more ice because their water wasn't cold enough.

    Dear miss allison

    You are very welcome to come back and vent your feelings after a penis has been waved at you.

    Sorry; it is a professional word, and sometimes we even have to write it in the notes!!

    Ohh the shame of it alll......heheheh

    and i'd be willing to place a bet that it's not the actual word the actual patient may have used.

    It's a heck of a lot more professional to let it out here than to actually do it, no? Are you all professional, all the time? I suspect not. If you don't like the thread, ignore it. Otherwise, leave well enough alone, we all have enough people telling us what to do as it is.

    Yeah but that could be the relief talking. Never been on the receiving end of a foley (not while conscious, anyway) but have been told by patients that being unable to empty your bladder is exquisitely painful. I'm no sweet young thing and I've had similar comments from pts of both sexes once the urine begins to drain.
